Finding Creativity


Continuing the theme from previous posts about creativity, I'd like to pose the question "Where do people find creativity?" More important than WHERE do people find creativity, is where do people find THEIR creativity?  In the short clip above, Jamie Hewlett subtly suggests that you find creativity by doing it, and by "it" I mean anything involving creation.  Build a shelf, draw a picture, start a garden.  Do things until you find what drives you, what fascinates you, what intrigues you.  Once you've found that thing, do it until you're burned out.  Then go through the same process and find something new.  Revisit old passions, always find new ones, copy other peoples passions.

The trick to finding creativity is looking; looking everywhere and looking all the time.
